These ecological bricks are helping to rebuild and revive a Brazilian community ravaged by a tragic dam disaster. Bricks From Mariana by ad agency Grey Brazil is a green campaign that is repurposing the mud from an environmental catastrophe late last year to create the literal building blocks that will help the Mariana region.

The eco brick not only serves to clean up the damage caused by the November 2015 Fundão Dam collapse by clearing the area, ecological bricks are made from the mud to reconstruct homes, schools and community buildings. This is not only a sustainable solution, it also brings new jobs to the community and provide an alternative source of income to families.
